My Job As An Electrician

I work as an electrician, usually around Sudbury, Ontario (Canada). My job mainly is electrical construction where we install the electrical systems in buildings and in industry. We install the electrical equipment and connect it with cables and wires so that it can function as it was designed. In addition to doing the normal things electricians do, I am qualified for and also perform the following jobs when needed.

  • Instrumentation tech
  • Communications and Data tech
  • Fire Alarm tech
  • Welder
  • Heavy Equipment Operator, Truck Driver
